The delicate balance

13 05 2010

The title above may not make sense if you are not fully involved in organising your life. I do not mean the usual waking up type drama, making yourself presentable and going to the office for the 9-5 and then heading back home to ease out of the drama called life….

What I mean here is when you are actively getting tired of things not going your way and you stop reacting to how things seem to be going.

You take a deep look at how things are and you make mental and actual written notes on how you want things to actually be.

You basically ACT!

Now the entire ACTing strategy is always frowned upon in real time…

Before you say I am ACTing too basic, hear me out… (You too Tumwi, even though you seem to hate the keyboard nowadays)… Your paycheque ain’t shyte… It never lasts more than 7 days! You never see your close hommies and homegirls… You miss all your favourite shows on TV, and the huge sports games you jotted down on the calendar, and TheHotness is always complaining that you don’t seem to have time for her…

Now with that basis, allow me to go deeper into the difficulties of the delicate balance..

You leave home early coz you want to reach the work place early and get deep into some project waaay before the regular office chatterboxes get in!

When you do so, TheHotness complains that you do not want to pay attention to her in the mornings

You want to watch spend some cash on yourself, but you ain’t got any left over transfer earnings (simple economics) so you do your budget analysis and then you realise that you owe more than you have coming in!

You head to watch the slamming rugger game, and you meet up with a bunch of chaps who feel that you spend too much time with TheHotness…

You get tired of all this drama, and you endeavour to ACT on it!

This necessitates taking a long hard look at yourself and wondering what really in life is worth living for!

Is it you!

Is it the chill?

Is it the work?

Is it Little Man and Sweet Angel!

Is it TheHotness herself

When you finally do get to this point is when the delicate balance actually begins!

This is when you realise that all the other realisations that you came up with a few years ago do not make no sense unless you take the deep thought process and stop doing whatever it is that you do not want to do, stop chatting about what it is you want to do and just start doing it!
